    Looking for a Super G Plus chassis
    Looking to replace a broken chassis for an AFX Super G Plus Indy car. A complete chassis would work but could also get by with just the bare chassis as that is what broke and all of the others parts are
    good. Could possibly purchase or trade. Thanks for the look.

    That is one great looking FC.

    Hate to be redundant, so, just outstanding.

    On board with everyone else, this looks great. One of my favorite cars, and your tribute to it is just outstanding. Thanks for sharing and all the great pics.

    Is the same kit as the 1974 Monogram '29 Ford Roadster? Saw one yesterday in a thrift store.

    Will be watching this one. The lack of a good Omni body has long frustrated me, but not as skilled as yourself so haven't undertaken a project like this.
  8. dragin70s added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    OK, I said I might never do another one of these, but I caved. Picked up the old Monogram 1/32 Snap-Tite "Blue Max " Funny car kit. Love the run of real Blue Max FCs, and had to have the kit of this one. For those interested, you can see my post from my build of the Prudhomme Pepsi Challenger kit from the same run of 1/32s at the URL below. Figure I might add to what I did on the Prudhomme by working on the actual chassis itself a bit more.

  9. dragin70s added a post in a topic Indy 500 today... does anyone care?   

    I will jump in on this revived topic. As a child, the "Indy 500" was special in my family. I guess my father was the lead in that, but from 1970 until the late '80s we a child and then I as an adult never missed the race on television. Living in Indianapolis in 1970, we attended the race that year. We actually attended Time Trials once or twice and were down at the pits on one day. We were in the infield on turn four, me on my Father's shoulders much of the race, as I was six. I still have the memorabilia from that day, including a set of four art prints of Unser, Andretti, Donohue, and Foyt I believe. I have some snapshots much like yours "mrIndy77", and everything associated with that day is special. Like many, after the "split" it just didn't seem the same to me, and I stopped following it as religiously. I still hope to make the pilgrimage back to Indy someday, to experience it again even its current form, and visit museum especially. In the meantime, I will try to get to work on my resin 1970 Colt Unser Johnny Lightning Special 1/25 kit, Under's winner from that year.

    Wow, they both look great, but I am absolutely lovin' that Glidden car. Just bought that new kit, didn't want to build the old one. Thanks for showing, just trying to get a couple 1/64 slots done for now, but that big ones are intriguing.

    Thanks, guys. I appreciate the input. I'll do some testing and see where it goes.

    Spraying one color (brand) lacquer over another color (brand)
    OK, can someone help me out. I sprayed a body with what I thought was the correct color, but it turns out it was too light. Can I spray a slightly darker lacquer color over the original layer of lacquer? Using different brands of paint? I would be using Testor's over Black Gold. Any input appreciated.

    Sad indeed. I make my way to St. Louis every year or so, and always make it a point to visit CRM hobbies. An old school shop nestled in an old neighborhood I am always aware that it is one of a dying breed and dread the day I visit and find a "Closed" sign.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Much appreciated.

    Question about getting decals copied/printed
    I have a couple of 1/64/HO scale resin funny car bodies that I want to do. I have the regular 1/25 decals that I need. My question is whether or not there is a chain type printing place (Office Depot, etc) that has printing available that would work for getting these reduced onto decal paper? Probably not, but just seeing if anybody had any thoughts. Thanks.
